Gender & Christianity 

Reading about gender in Christianity and learning that almost all Christianities consider God to be genderless, although God the Father is sometimes considered "of masculine gender" and God the Son is sometimes "incarnated as a male human".

One exception: Mormons made God cishet! He is married to the Heavenly Mother??? We humans are children of their marriage???? What the fuck you're not taking away my plural/genderfluid masc he/him enby God headcannon!!

Things I do on my computer instead of doing fun things:
- Compulsively check for package updates
- Defragment my btrfs partition and trim my SSD
- Switch between workspaces quickly, alternating left and right, keyboard or trackpad gesture
- Go into a random old project an update dependencies
- $ curl
- Open and close my own website a few times

Repeat ad nauseum

How about they call us bilaterians ? "Hello, tubes of poop and future poop! We come in peace!"
Or vertebrates: "Hello, columns of hard stuff surrounded by soft stuff!"
Repeat with every weird but accurate description of different branches of life

But then again, having the reflex to repetitively press Ctrl+W whenever I see a Google page is a pretty good idea lol

New UI design paradigm: material design x those low quality but charming animations on bowling alleys

Bad: my way of pronouncing it is the only correct way
Good: there is no correct correct pronunciation, do whatever you want
Better: the way to pronounce it is the way most people will understand
